"Lipbone Redding takes the blue eyed soul thing to a whole different level" - John Johnson, KFMU
Making a leap of faith in 1998, Lipbone began playing in the subways of Manhattan. An already accomplished performance artist and aspiring songwriter, he honed his craft in the late-night cathedrals and underground labyrinth of the New York City Transit system.
In 2001, Lipbone began an epic adventure that is still unfolding. He traveled to South America where he witnessed the power of music opening the hearts and homes of strangers. He was struck with a revelation that music was the key to spirituality and community.
Upon his return to the states, Lipbone loaded up his little camper truck, "The Beautiful Flying Machine," and made his way from town to town via the highways and byways of America. In 2003, his travels led him to San Francisco, where he performed for early morning yoga classes and in the clubs at night, quickly earning a reputation as a versatile artist with a positive message. It was in San Francisco that he was introduced to the music of India and South Asia. That same year he followed the Ganges in India into the Himalayas. There he remained for a year, living in ashrams, and playing music with local masters.
Several of Lipbone's songs have become Americana and Jamband radio hits throughout the U.S. and he can be heard on NPR, Internet and Community radio stations, as well as in tv and film sound tracks.
Since he first began in the subway, Lipbone has released 8 albums and many live recordings selling thousands worldwide and with his blessing, pirated by many more. He has collaborated with artists, musicians, theater & dance troupes, and toured widely, performing over 200 shows a year.
